Provitamin B5

Provitamine B5

Provitamin B5, also known as panthenol, is found in lentils, whole grains, soy and egg yolks. Highly prized in cosmetics, it has numerous benefits for the skin, thanks in particular to its reparative and regenerative capacities.

In fact, by stimulating the proliferation of fibroblasts, the connective tissue that supports the skin, provitamin B5 plays an essential role in the cutaneous repair process. This active ingredient is therefore invaluable for healing the skin or soothing it after the effects of the sun's rays.

An ally of dry skin, provitamin B5 reinforces the hydrolipidic film, reducing the skin's water loss and limiting dehydration, so that the epidermis regains elasticity and softness. Its anti-inflammatory properties also help irritated, itchy skin.

In addition to skin, hair also benefits from the virtues of panthenol, which ensures cohesion between its scales and strengthens the structure of hair cells.
